Two of the most renowned taverns of Rethymno are found in the village. The visitor can stroll along the picturesque alleys of the village in the afternoon.

At night, the city of Rethymno (only 5 Kilometres away), provides ample entertainment and is famous for its night life especially. Only 50m from the villas, you will find a supermarket, a bakery, a video club, a souvenir shop and an ATM.

In the back yard of the villa is a parking space, a portable barbecue and plenty of space for children to play.
In front of the villa is a 30 m2 swimming pool for your pleasure. Around the pool there are sun chairs, umbrellas, tables and all this surrounded by flowerbeds.

For your convenience there are also table chairs under huge umbrellas where you can enjoy your breakfast or lunch by the pool, surrounded by beautiful countryside.

Atsipopoulo village: ATSIPOPOULO
It is situated 5 kilometres west of Rethymno at an altitude of 160m. Its permanent residents are 2.500 (as recorded in 2001). It is built almost in the centre of Northern Crete and is only 85 Kilometres from the Heraklion airport and 70 Kilometres away from the one in Hania. The visitor can also arrive by ship from Piraeus daily through Hania or Heraklion and Directly through Rethymno (3 times a week). It is only 4 Kilometres from the nearest beach and only 10 kilometers to the west you will find the extensive beach of Episkopi.

The village of Atsipopoulo is strategically placed and therefore it has seen many battles against the Turks. The houses are closely built to each other and are easily converted to a fortress in times of need. The residents realized the architectural value of their homes and respected and up kept them. In this way Atsipopoulo today upholds the traditional look and sophistication of Venetian years. Its neighbourhoods, its churches.

                                            George and Maria were there to greet us on our arrival, the villa smelt fresh and clean and was absolutely spotless and was so spacious and decor was beautiful. After having a drink together "yamas" they left us to unpack and settle in. The information they left us was very useful and nothing was too much trouble for them. George checked we were ok with text messages and made sure we wanted for nothing. We had 8 lovely days in this 1st class villa and wanted more . Weather was not good for the first 3 days which was unusual then it got hotter as the days went on. We would like to thank George and Maria for being perfect hosts and we will return.

                                            What better start to a holiday than to be met by George and his sister, all smiles despite the late hour, who showed us over the villa and plied us with homemade cakes and glasses of raki. Further exploration the next day revealed a beautiful new villa furnished in typical Greek style and with table and chairs outside by the pool where we took most of our meals. The screening around the pool was covered with jasmine, honeysuckle and other flowering plants which smelt gorgeous particularly in the evening or early morning. No attention to detail was spared and there would be little to change if one were to move in permanently. I wish! The villa is most conveniently situated in a pleasant little village with some excellent tavernas and useful shops and it’s an easy drive down to Rethymo with its lovely harbour and old fortress. Inland the countryside is beautiful with deep gorges, olive groves and vineyards. Out of the way places to visit, perhaps not in the guide books - the little town of Spili - a centre for weaving pottery and other handicrafts, Myli Gorge with its little café in an otherwise uninhabited village, the lake Limni Kourna near Georgioupoli and the monasteries of Irini and Cheveli both set in lovely countryside and containing really beautiful icons. I could go on but suffice it to say I would love to go back to Crete and, if I do, it will be to the Villa Elias.

                                            This summer will remain unforgettable to me and to my family. These holidays were the most beautiful we ever had. The villa was outstanding, clean and comfortable and also traditional. The owners were really hospitable, they provided us with all the information we needed. We enjoyed a lot the clean pool and we spent a lot of time relaxing next to it. The villa is exactly as decribed with every comfort, and also Rethymno is a magic town, especially in the evening. Unfortunately, the one week was not enough but we left promising to the owners that we will be back again soon.

                                            Recommended for: Age 55+, people with disabilities, adventure seekers, tourists without a car, families with teenagers, families with young children.
